Team Notes

Participants: Lisa and Chris Garrett

Weather: warm- 75 sunny partially cloudy

Location: Backyard in North Beach facing wetlands and Chesapeake Bay

Time At Location: 11-am- 130pm 2.5 hrs

We saw lots of migrating hawks and bald eagles, ABOUT 30 in just about 2 hours in our backyard. After we cleared some branches and brush we saw that many other birds were winging by. If we had filled the feeders our count for yard birds would have been much higher.(We observed over 250 birds flying by and surely missed some species) A great first Big Sit for us!
